e. coli these days because they're more aware of it. >> you can have diarrhea without any blood and so if someone, you know, has been to that particular restaurant and, you know, developed diarrhea then they should report to the health department, as well. >> joe, do they know where this e. coli came from. >> it could be meat contamination or vegetable contamination, or which is often the case in restaurants, cross contamination meaning they dbt wash the dishes properly or hands properly. >> joe vasquez in san francisco. joe, thank you. >> thanks. tonight, we're on island again a couple hundred feet above the new bay bridge roadway. you can hear the grinding, the compressors going, jackhammers, a hub of activity going nonstop as they ready the bridge for the
grand opening coming up on tuesday morning. we got out here and saw something we've never seen before. they lit up the bridge, and we saw a vortex of light come up off the top of the bridge. now, this photograph, which shot by brian, our photojournalist tonight. we call it the tower beams. it's a big v that shoots up over top of the bridge. there's a lot going out here as i say. christin ayers at the toll plaza looking ahead at the next big step in this project. chrisin. >> tim, the next big step in this project is to move on from the toll plaza. if you look behind me you can see it's actually relatively quiet out here. crews have finished just about everything they have to do here at the toll plaza and will probably be wrapping up tonight. they are clearing some of the final hurdles before the new eastern span can be open. caltrans says they are picking off the final project one by one. now, here's what will happen
over the next 24 hours. crews will finish demolishing roadway. they will also clean the tunnel leading to the western span and add led lighting to it, and lastly cranes will start bringing in large tres el pieces that will be use today actually build the bike path. this afternoon, we got a chance to go out back on the old bridge and get a new perspective on the bike path that will go on the new bridge. from this vantage point, you can actually see where the bike path ends right there. it dead ends right in that area. it can't be built any further because the oeltd bay bridge is actually still in the way. going to take at least three more years before crews are able to completely demolish the old bridge piece by piece. >> back out here live, some of this work continuing out here. caltrans reaffirming tonight that they are on schedule and when you look at the fact that
in just a little over 38 hours they have managed to finish the work they needed done right here at the toll plaza and are able to move ong to the next naz, you have to think if there is any possibility this could open a little early than that tuesday 5:00 a.m. deadline. >> all right. christin, thank you very much for that. that is a key component. the oakland touch e touchdown that she's talking about over on the eastern side there. that is something they were worried about there, would it go as smoothly as possible, and as it seems to be moving along right on schedule. something that didn't go on schedule today rgs that commute home. it was a nightmare. partly because today is a friday, it is first of a big three-day weekend, and partly because you can't cross the bay bridge. it was absolutely crazy. a lot of us drive around the bay to get to the city just like you do every day. at one point when i was driving, i saw people so frustrated they
just got out of their cars and waited on the side of the road hoping traffic would kind of thin out anyway. caltran says the traffic on the san mateo bridge today almost 60% higher than normal. you think about the numbers of cars on that bridge. its's mind boggling. on the golden gate, traffic was up 13%, as well. traffic wasn't just a headache. majorly headache for commuters. tom pa bay pitcher daefd price, get this story, he spent two hours and $200 on a cab ride to the coliseum. he didn't have a car, couldn't get across the bridge, had to get to the game so jumped in a cab, cost 200 biks and all that time to get around all the traffic. apparently he didn't want to take bart. that would have cost him about 4 bucks. there you go. he tweeted about his misadventure today. as for tomorrow, he says, don't worry, i have a helicopter rented. i'll get to the field in
estimated time of 6 minutes 24 seconds. going to cost more than that cab ride. i'll have you know that. to help you get around during the commute and the closure, you can check our web site will have all the information there. our survival guide you can find on kpix.com. in just the last hour, un inspectors left syria and so the u.s. could launch a military strike at think time. tonight, six navy warships are in position. a white house intelligence report says the united states has high confidence that the syrian government attacked civilians last week with nerve gas killing more than 1400 people including more than 400 children. the president says he hasn't made any decisions but is considering a limited strike, one without any boots on the ground. allen martin on how the administration is making its case for retaliation. >> secretary of state john kerry laid out the evidence. much of it comes from spy satellites and intercepted communications.
. >> we know that for three days before the attack the syrian regime chemical weapons personnel were on the ground in the area making preparations. >> the syrian army had been unable to retake using conventional weapons. in the early-morning hours of august 21st, satellites detected the flashes of rockets being fired and detonated. >> we know where the rockets were launched from and at what tomb. time. we know where they land and when. >> 90 minutes later, kerry said all hell broke loose on the internet with videos where the rockets had landed and then a conversation between two syrians was intercepted. >> we know that a senior regime official who knew about the attack confirmed that chemical weapons were used by the regime.
>> for analysts, it adds up to high confidence but not a smoking gun, and they reached that conclusion knowing intelligence about chemical weapons in iraq turned out to be wrong and that a previous secretary of state colin po well ended up presenting a bogus case for war. >> our intelligence committee carefully reviewed and rereviewed information regarding this attack, and i will tell you it has done so more than mindful of the iraq experience. we will not repeat that moment. >> iraq was an invasion. this is expected to be a brief, limited air strike, but just in case, the pentagon has moved an am fibbous ship with several hundred marines on board into the eastern mediterranean. allen martin, kpix 5. >> the un says it could take weeks to analyze the samples taken from the attack sites. nurse practitioners, mid wives and physicians assistants
